I have been all over the place to find a DVD for this film, there is just a limited edition around. I don't agree with the negative comments, the plot of actors is magnificent and this is what makes a good film, the right selection for every character and having it compared to previous editions which were dull and boring. in particular the BBC one with Bob Hoskins which I returned to the shop. What makes the film particularly interesting is the recurring evil stepfather (Amthony Andrews) and Copperfield's (Hugh Dancy) personal revenge, a change I think that works very well. I would have never thought that I could become attached to David Copperfield until I saw this film.
